Hello fellow poker players.

I want to invite you to join my youtube channel where i’m streaming some online micros poker (NL20€+) on Run It Once Poker for their streaming program StreamR.

Also, for those new to solvers i will stream some exploration sessions with the software GTO+ on which i made a video series on how to get started with it on my youtube channel.

I hope to see you there and i hope you’ll have plenty of questions for me. At the bottom you’ll find infos on how to contact me.

Hey SnowAndFire Where did you learn that nomenclature of LLL MLL etc. We may come from the same place ;)

March 31, 2019 | 3:50 p.m.

I could be interested, send me the link.
I’m playing NL30 on Espace Jeux and NL20€ on Run It Once Poker.

Hey what stakes are you playing? I'm a French Canadian from Montreal.

You stipulate that there is 2 hearts on flop but you do hold one which reduce the chances for him to have 2 hearts, i think this shouldn't be neglected in the thought process.

I think on such a flop i would go smaller IP as the PFR. On turn you do holds nuts in your range and so does he. You'll have better hands to bet big and OB with and this hand should go into a smaller bet size range but could probably seek thin value on turn.

River unlocks other nuts hands that you do have also, i'm thinking about some Ax wheel and backdoor diamonds draw but you probably have fewer of them compare to him do to the nature of your small bet sizing on turn, you probably includes some GS with Ax wheel with a big bet range on Turn. On river i think the check is pretty fine, specially if Villain is good enough to protect his x/calling range on turns with nuts hands.

I just want to make quick precision here, flop bet isn't half pot nor turn bet.

Run It Once Poker, Hold'em No Limit - €0.10/€0.20 - 6 players

Christian P (UTG): €19.00 (95 bb)
Clint Y (MP): €28.42 (142 bb)
Bradley Z (CO): €25.43 (127 bb)
Russell G (BU): €20.00 (100 bb)
Timothy F (SB): €17.83 (89 bb)
Hero (BB): €22.64 (113 bb)

Pre-Flop: (€0.30) Hero (Hero) is BB with 7♥ 8♥
Christian P (UTG) raises to €0.40, 4 players fold, Hero (BB) calls €0.20

Flop: (€0.90) 7♠ J♣ A♦ (2 players)
Hero (BB) checks, Christian P (UTG) bets €0.26, Hero (BB) calls €0.26

Turn: (€1.42) 7♣ (2 players)
Hero (BB) bets €0.44, Christian P (UTG) calls €0.44

River: (€2.30) K♦ (2 players)
Hero (BB) bets €1.43, Christian P (UTG) calls €1.43

I'm exploring with new lines right now and i'm wondering if i can go with an OB on river or the 7x should stay in a smaller(66%psb) betting range. I do have QT on river.

Absolutely not. I'm currently running a old Mac Pro Mid 2011 with a Windows 7 disk on it and PIO run flawlessly.

Comment | BackFromDagobah commented on On Bluffing

Hey Francesco,

Again, a very solid video, thanks.

I just want to point out something. It is not a big issue but maybe it will help you to not do it again in the future. On your seventh slate the final point(text) isn't showing properly.

Thanks again and keep up the good material.

Nov. 29, 2018 | 3:06 p.m.

How many natural bluffs does V has here? What worse hands does he bet here? What better hands then J9o folds on this runout?

And more importantly, given Hero's line, who got more nuts on this runout?

Most likely, given the bet size line, V land on river poorly constructed with very few natural bluffs or logical bluffs so ''Being quite high in your range'' is irrelevant.

Oct. 26, 2018 | 12:21 a.m.

Generally paired turn should decrease betting frequency overall. Here due to the nature of the runout and your ability to block so much of V's continuance range i think both of these options are viable; a) Bet smaller on turn. Mainly because a paired turn should help you bet thinner overall because it is less likely, since another K spikes turn, that V has any Kx flavour in his continuance range. b) check back if your V have a high frequency of leading on river when you check turn.

I bought 6-max 4 sizes with rake and it seems that with the 3x open size from LJ, you didn't provide the BB calling range but only the BB 3B range.

June 28, 2018 | 4:10 a.m.

Thanks for the responses guys, i appreciate.

Hey FishPoker I'm looking to build a GTO+ Study group, hit me in PM if you are interested. I'm currently playing NL30 and will most likely move up to NL50 by mid june.

June 6, 2018 | 4:51 a.m.

Come on SS grinders show some love, life is short.

June 6, 2018 | 3:10 a.m.

Why do you think his range becomes stronger on a board pairing turn and also given this straight board that is favoring the pre-flop caller? His sizing turn smell fishy.

May 30, 2018 | 5:06 a.m.

Sizing don't matter in exploitative folds spot, only villain's range. When Villain's range is so strong that he can't balance properly with bluffs, the only response to his aggression is simply folding all our range to any size when we are bluff catching. Like i said, given previous action, this is not the case, Hero don't have a capped range, he has some nuts hands in his range that will allow him to call or raise this river and more importantly he is not bluff catching.

May 29, 2018 | 1:21 p.m.

To be an exploitative folds you would need to be sure that the range of your opponent is so strong and narrow that he can't find enough bluffs to balance his raising range on the river. Given pre-flop action, the board/runout and his line overall it doesn't seems like it is the case here.

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: GTO+ Study Group

I am looking for dedicated and serious players from SSNL to set up a study group with GTO+.

I am currently a NL30 / NL50 player playing on a Canadian online poker site.

The goal of the group will be to explore the game under the magnifying glass of GTO+, share simulations and discoveries resulting from these simulations in order to build a solid strategy to climb the steps and exit the SSNL.

If you play a decent volume, have time to spend through GTO+ and are eager to improve, PM me and we should be able to put together a strong group.

The group will be trained using the Discord platform.

I'm pretty fine to be honest, Octo 16gig Ram.

April 17, 2018 | 2:17 p.m.

I understand it won't gives me very accurate results but nonetheless it can gives a broad overall view on what the strategy could look like.

For example, in a Flop only simulation, hands that are 100% checks will very very rarely be bet more then 50% in the full simulation. So you can deduce form the results coming from the Flop only simulation that in a full simulation those hands will probably be more like 60%+ checks.

Hands that are 100% bet in a Flop only simulation will be very near that % in a full simulation.

My point being that when you don't have times to do a full simulation, a more complex one, would running a simple street simulation like this can gives enough accurate results to assume what the full strategy could look like ?

Can it be somewhat useful?

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: Random Number Generators

Recently i watched a NLHE vid on an other sites and the coach in the video (MYNAMEISKARL) had a number generators along with his HUD. What is the software? Where can we find those? Is there generators solely made for Poker?

Post | BackFromDagobah posted in NLHE: Single Street With PIO

Sometimes when i use PIO and i want to make the simulation less CPU intensives and mostly short in time i don't simulate a full line scenario. For example i only input parameters for the flop and start the simulation. Of course this won't give me an accurate solution like it would with a full parameters solved line but i found, maybe wrongly, that it gives a pretty good estimates of what the strategy would look like in a full line scenario.

From you PIO seasoned guy is there any problem with this way of doing things?

April 8, 2018 | 11:52 p.m.

I would like to add, that i got the basic version of PIO so i can't use the preflop ranges which i paid for. Nowhere on the site it is stipulate that you need a)PIO b)The edge version.
